Luis “Chavit” Singson says he has recordings showing former president Joseph Estrada talked to a certain former general Nazareno (not Garcillano as I first heard). This echoes, but it is still different from, scuttlebutt from some time back, that the former president and his son, Jinggoy Estrada, were part of the “Hello Garci” tapes (or similar tapes).
Update: The best that former Rep. Dinangalen can do is say this is another Chavit dirty trick, and that being detained, how could Estrada make phone calls? How, indeed, considering the way Estrada manages to talk to media all the time.
Chavit says the recording proves Fernando Poe, Jr. really lost in Mindanao; and that Estrada wanted President Arroyo assassinated and then to set up a transition government to pave the way to Estrada’s return to power. He further claims the recording is part of the “mother tape” from which the “Hello, Garci” conversations were taken (although Singson says that’s just his personal theory); the recording, apparently, just anonymously appeared yesterday.
